…the 11th Annual NanoTechnology for Defense Conference (NT4D), 4 – 7 November 2013, at the Hilton El Conquistador in Tucson, Arizona. Initiated over a decade ago by the Air Force Research Laboratory, Army Research Laboratory, the Office of Naval Research, the Defense Threat Reduction Agency, and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, the NT4D remains the premier event addressing emerging and nano technologies for defense.
The many national programs on science and nanotechnology are providing research discoveries that hold considerable promise for both evolutionary and disruptive technology innovation. NT4D focuses on accelerating the rate of transition from discovery to technology, and is committed to providing a fertile and stimulating forum for discussion on recent nanotechnology innovations in order to maximize their impact on defense and dual-use technologies. This focused conference brings together technical representatives from industry, academia, and government to discuss defense technology needs, identify exciting nano advances primed for technology development, forge connections to facilitate and accelerate the development process, identify obstacles to the accelerated transition of nanotechnology and emerging technology innovations, and address the most critical issues in real and emerging needs for defense. Collaboration and opportunities for innovation are a primary focus for this event.
